sad new - John Siceloff

With great sadness I’m writing to let you know that John Siceloff passed away last Friday after battling a fast-growing cancer.  John, who taught for us at the CPB/PBS Producers Workshop at WGBH and at the special Workshop we did for Puerto Rico’s public television, was a wonderful, caring soul who’d worked for more than 20 years as an award-winning broadcast news producer, for ABC, NBC, CBS, and PBS, where he launched Now with Bill Moyers.  After years of journalism in the US, Africa, and…See More

Hey Texas friends, someone I know is looking for an editor to polish up her almost-finished film about Navajos and uranium mining. She's in Austin. Interested? Suggestions?

Thank you Judith!

Thanks! Yes, we've had a ton of press. You'd think that I'd know how to talk to the media (because I AM the media) but I never really learned how to be an interviewee until now. I have an Ovee screening tomorrow, and 4 more events in 4 cities in the coming week. Then I guess I should go make another show.

Thanks Judith.  I am sooo looking forward to getting funding for Running To Win because I know that it's gonna be a eye opening, entertaining documentary.

Hi Judith, yes.  I do know Katie.  She's great.  Her stories for Earthfix are quite good; getting some national play on Newshour.   All is well here at KCTS9.  We're a bit soggy this time of year, but looking forward to summer in June...er, July...well Septemer for sure.

Thank you so much Judith.  What a great way to keep in touch!  (Also- the Applied Economics sounds fancier than it is...it's Cornell's name for their business major =)

Thanks!  IT's been an amazing few weeks.

Thanks Judith!  It was definitely down to the wire - and I was worried!  But folks came through.  I'm so grateful!

Thanks for the welcome, Judith!  I've been doing a lot of kid raising and very little filmmaking in the past few years, but I'm trying to get back in the loop.  I just finished a web-based video project that I'd love to get the Producers Workshop community's advice on.  Specifically, I'm trying to drum up web traffic, and ideally find a broadcast partner.  I'll post some videos and the link to the site.  Hope you are well!
